Georgi Gospodinov reveals the hidden messages of Bulgarian banknotes

Writer Georgi Gospodinov presented in Burgas one of his less known works entitled “The Cracks of the Canon”. It is divided into two parts. The first one renders an analysis of some of the less popular works of renowned Bulgarian writers Hristo Botev, Peyo Yovorov and Nikola Vaptsarov. The second part of the book is devoted to themes such as memory, sorrow and memories. These themes provoked the author to explore in detail the banknotes that are still in circulation. His work is remarkable, because the writer manages to study the message of the texts immortalized on the banknotes and answers why exactly these texts were selected.

“Each of us carries an anthology in his pocket, but unfortunately, we know little about it”, says Georgi Gospodinov.
